Oh bugger. And my summer holiday was looking so relaxing too.....

REALLY interested in this. I hope there is a nice generous cut-off though! I guess running the cliffs at night is good ONER practice.....

The run is day 3 of the Jurassic Coastal Challenge.

http://www.votwo.co.uk/events-1/jcc-2013

It is off road, ludicrously hilly and lots of it is completely un-runnable Laughing I think it is about 7500 feet of ascent (and descent!) But what really makes it tough is how steep/rocky the ups and downs are. Also if it is wet you'll have a kilo of clay on each foot to add to the fun.

This looks like it could be for me being local and all that, I could pop in at home for a cuppa at half way point on the Bike, that's as long as its not a silly price

As transport is being included, I suspect it might add to the entry though Sad

Be nice if they offer a non transport version ?

If it's on road (I guess it is) and they follow the coast (I guess they will) it'll look alot like this

I expect any transport options will be extra cost options, as opposed to included.

That's true Mr.R.

Let us all be very sick then Very Happy

Has no-one (ideally with local knowledge) mapped out a possible ride route yet? May as well give Claire some ideas... Smile

I don't think the run will be that much in the dark. Plenty of light that time of year. The hills on the run really will be just nice walk breaks, before pressing on.
